    Tasted from a sample. Not bad for my first indian whisky, but not something to write about.

    Lacks complexity overall and the flavors don't linger for long.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Slight smoke, fresh sweet fruity tones.

      Alcohol was probably the least noticeable of the 3 samples i was given.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Sweet, dry earth peat, tons of spices.

      Flavors dissipate quickly.
    • Finish
      84 84
      The finish is probably the most interesting part as i get some of the fruitiness that quietly lingers alongside hints of peat and spices.

      Short to medium finish

    A 3-4 year old Indian whisky that started recently, the distillation has been running since 2005, in 2010 two stills with barley, previously used molasses as for rum!
    The barley is Indian, 6 rows, rich in protein, the peat coming from Islay:
    60 hours fermentation, 15 hours of rest for a more complex juice, an ascending swan neck to have more contact with the copper
    sweet, spicy and exotic fruits, quite simple, then the fruits come out of a basket of candied fruits
    multiple spices on the palate, on peppers, on subtle anise, a little curry, fruit here maderized, sweet and candied, strength of fruit sugar,
    the earthy peat that gives way to dry smoke, liquorice,
    soaked wood that comes out at this moment, barley ... fresh malt
    earthy peat, dry smoke, actually more on smoke, ash and spices, undifferentiated fruit, monolithic and fairly short finish.
